Why do I sometimes have to wait when I turn up for my appointment? And why is it that sometimes people arrive after me, but get seen before me?

Sometimes when we are seeing patients the appointments can run over the allotted time. If this happens, you may end up waiting longer than is ideal. We are sorry that this is the case, as we realise it can be an inconvenience. Wherever possible we try to reduce waiting times.

We have some magazines available to read whilst you wait, but you might want to bring other things with you to pass the time in case you do have to wait.

We see everyone in order of their appointment. Even if someone arrives after you, it may be that their appointment time is actually before yours. If you want to know how many people are waiting in front of you, please ask at the reception desk.
